Haaretz, one of Israel’s premier news sources, has launched the Haaretz iPad App for English readers worldwide. The Haaretz iPad app is the first Israeli product to be available on the Apple Newsstand, and can be downloaded for free at the Apple store. Designed with Tigerspike, the Haaretz iPad app delivers the most comprehensive and interactive news experience Haaretz has ever offered covering Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world. The iPad edition gives readers enhanced news content, brilliant photos, in-depth videos and a daily digital replica of the print edition, as well as the latest breaking news and other interactive features. Users can download the Haaretz iPad app for free, with unlimited access to all content included with a Haaretz digital subscription.
“The Haaretz iPad edition is sleek, interactive, and delivers the best coverage of the news that matters most to Haaretz readers worldwide,” said Lior Kodner, Haaretz Head of Digital. “Following the popularity of our other digital offerings, we are excited to give audiences the ability to read, watch, touch, and experience Haaretz’s award-winning journalism on the iPad.
